Gift of intuition

Grateful to intuit.
For the answers tumble through you
The path breaks through in the trusting
Until the way becomes you.

A sense of intuition is a gift
We all have it within us
Sometimes it propels you to it gently.
At other times it compels you to conform.


A substantial force in subtlety of being.
It is our spirit guide that moves with us
Follows through in ways we cannot  fathom
In a knowing (in the gut) of wisdom across lifelines beyond lifetimes.

What matters most is our tuning inward To our well of wisdom in the listening.
Thankful for the master guide within.
In deep gratitude  for this gift in the journey of life.

Age No Bar

To dance is to get in touch  with yourself.


To dance is to express yout own sense of rhythm.



To dance is to move from all of your heart.


To dance is to connect  with the inner child within.


To dance is so much more than the moves you do, it is to tune into your own being.


To dance is to  explore and express the connect you feel within you.


Socrates learned to dance when he was seventy because he felt that an essential part of himself had been neglected.

Age is no bar to learn to dance !

The whirling wisdom

In the gaze
Between nowhere and somewhere
Half opened eyes
Focussing within
Finding the sense of balance
In the inner recesses
Of the spirit and soul

Juxtaposed between
The art of the moves
Is the rhythm divine
That manifests the flow.
Subliming the Souls calling

Knowing the wisdom
Of the whirling moves
That centers
The mind spirit and body
All rolling into one
In the state of flow
A divinity in motion.

The truth by far
Is within us to find
Every truth unravelled
Conveys the wholeness
Of the harmonious flow
Each truth is sufficient
For the being to know.

The Condor



The Condor  is one of the largest  flying bird in the world.
Magnificient birds with wings spreading to almost three feet.

They are a symbol of strength and freedom.
They have a distinct white  circle of tuft of feathers on the neck as well on their wings.
The Andean condors are monogamous  birds
They live with a single partner all their life.
They are known to care for their offspring together,  for almost an year.


There are many legends  by Incas associated  with these amazing birds.
Of how much they are tuned in to  the circle of life.
Talks about the magnanimity & loyalty as a bird.

Soulful Expressions




Expression is our birthright It makes us who we are…

In being able to move without fear or favour,

Art speaks from the heart of our soul.

Bringing forth our soulful expressions.

All is a matter of energy


All is a matter of energy

Within you and me

Our thoughts, emotions and behaviors

Are but a dance of energy.

Interconnected and interdependent

Keep your thoughts positive

Your every positive thought matters. 👌

On Education

In continuation to my earlier post on Holistic education. I came across this poignant post and I heartfully share this wonderful initiative and reflections.

ATTENTION ALL TEACHERS AND PARENTS

Every Friday afternoon Chase’s teacher asks her students to take out a piece of paper and write down the names of four children with whom they’d like to sit the following week. The children know that these requests may or may not be honored. She also asks the students to nominate one student whom they believe has been an exceptional classroom citizen that week. All ballots are privately submitted to her.

And every single Friday afternoon, after the students go home, Chase’s teacher takes out those slips of paper, places them in front of her and studies them. She looks for patterns.

Who is not getting requested by anyone else?
Who doesn’t even know who to request?
Who never gets noticed enough to be nominated?
Who had a million friends last week and none this week?

You see, Chase’s teacher is not looking for a new seating chart or “exceptional citizens.” Chase’s teacher is looking for lonely children. She’s looking for children who are struggling to connect with other children. She’s identifying the little ones who are falling through the cracks of the class’s social life. She is discovering whose gifts are going unnoticed by their peers. And she’s pinning down- right away- who’s being bullied and who is doing the bullying.

As a teacher, parent, and lover of all children – I think that this is the most brilliant Love Ninja strategy I have ever encountered. It’s like taking an X-ray of a classroom to see beneath the surface of things and into the hearts of students. It is like mining for gold – the gold being those little ones who need a little help – who need adults to step in and TEACH them how to make friends, how to ask others to play, how to join a group, or how to share their gifts with others. And it’s a bully deterrent because every teacher knows that bullying usually happens outside of her eyeshot – and that often kids being bullied are too intimidated to share. But as she said – the truth comes out on those safe, private, little sheets of paper.

As Chase’s teacher explained this simple, ingenious idea – I stared at her with my mouth hanging open. “How long have you been using this system?” I said.
Ever since Columbine, she said. Every single Friday afternoon since Columbine.

Good Lord.

This brilliant woman watched Columbine knowing that ALL VIOLENCE BEGINS WITH DISCONNECTION. All outward violence begins as inner loneliness. She watched that tragedy KNOWING that children who aren’t being noticed will eventually resort to being noticed by any means necessary.

And so she decided to start fighting violence early and often, and with the world within her reach. What Chase’s teacher is doing when she sits in her empty classroom studying those lists written with shaky 11 year old hands – is SAVING LIVES. I am convinced of it. She is saving lives.

And what this mathematician has learned while using this system is something she really already knew: that everything – even love, even belonging – has a pattern to it. And she finds those patterns through those lists – she breaks the codes of disconnection. And then she gets lonely kids the help they need. It’s math to her. It’s MATH.

All is love- even math. Amazing.

Chase’s teacher retires this year – after decades of saving lives. What a way to spend a life: looking for patterns of love and loneliness. Stepping in, every single day- and altering the trajectory of our world.

TEACH ON, WARRIORS. You are the first responders, the front line, the disconnection detectives, and the best and ONLY hope we’ve got for a better world. What you do in those classrooms when no one is watching- it’s our best hope. http://momastery.com/blog/2014/01/30/share-schools/
